bill-monstersOctober was busy month that ended with a cool Halloween party.

I always get a kick watching folks eating and drinking while in full costume. Scott Wilson seemed to have some difficulty getting his hands and arms over his chest and Craig Morton looked a lot like Craig Morton!

 

 

It was a large turnout that can best be described…eclectic!

I encourage all members to attend the Annual Meeting on November 13th at 11:30 am. Agenda items include a review of 2016 including financial results status of our building fund as well as discussion on capital expenditures and facility improvements followed by preliminary plans and budgets for 2017. I will also be awarding the perpetual trophies. The meeting should last about 60-90 minutes with time devoted to questions and answers. The entire agenda is posted on the website.

On another note, I realized I have not given enough recognition and acknowledgement to our Entertainment Chair, Miriam Browne, and her Committee of E-troupers. The success of our events is directly and unequivocally the result of long hours and hard work by Miriam and her committee. Each event requires planning and scheduling to get the club decorated and then returning things to “normal”.  A quick down and dirty of the events shows the group has organized 33+ events through the end of October! To Miriam and the entire E-troupers committee: Thank you!

We recently received notice that The Pacific Inter-Club Yacht Association (PICYA) has bestowed to Sausalito Yacht Club the Nimitz Club Youth Sailing: The Admiral Chester W. Nimitz USN Perpetual Trophy. The trophy is given to the PICYA member yacht club that has made the greatest advancement in youth sailing. This is a tremendous honor that further demonstrates the continued growth and success of our youth sailing program under the leadership of Renee DeCurtis. Congratulations!
